Lilly Singh is getting some good advice ahead of the premiere of “A Little Late With Lilly Singh”.
The Canadian YouTuber-turned-mainstream sensation met with former “The Daily Show” correspondent Hasan Minhaj in a video published by Netflix. Minhaj, 33, had some advice for Singh, 30. What is special about the advice is that Jon Stewart once shared the same words with Minhaj.
“He would give me no notes. None!” Minhaj exclaimed. “He would just be like ‘That’s great.’ He would basically just ask me questions, like ‘What are you interested in?’ or ‘Why does that bug you?’ But he would never give me specific advice. And the note of having no note was the best note.”
“You’re gonna be you, Stephen [Colbert] is gonna be Stephen, [John] Oliver is gonna be Oliver — everyone is gonna do their own version of who they are,” he told Singh. “Try to figure out what it is that you want to say because everything trickles down from that.”
In Oct. 2018, Minhaj debuted his weekly comedy show “Patriot Act With Hasan Minhaj” on Netflix. Just this past April, he was listed among TIME‘s 100 most influential people in the world.
“A Little Late With Lilly Singh” premieres Sept. 16 and you can watch it on Global TV.
